Question Stones in tyre tread

I saw there are some small stones in the tyre between threads. I removed some of them, but there are lot many minute particles which is very difficult to remove. Will this create any problem.

When do we swap tyres. I have done 17k kilometers, I am not sure whether it has been done in the service.

Get it to the tyre-wala he'll do it for you. Shouldn't be a problem. Will just create excessive noise.

As Rohan said, take it to a tyre shop and have them removed. They generally are not harmful but may get wedged in very deep if you don't remove them at an early stage.

If by swap you mean "rotate', you should go ahead and do it now (find out from the workshop if they did it already). Tyre rotation is recommended every 12K kms or so.

Thanks for the comments. I could not find the exact section to place this thread, so ended up somewhere else. Thanks for putting it in the right place.

Default Re: Stones in tyre tread

Apologies for bumping an old thread. I am facing a peculiar problem. I've completed 1000 kms with my Ciaz with appollo typres. I have a weird problem with my rear right tyre. There are always, i do mean ALWAYS, stones stuck in the tread. I have a small patch of untarred section near my house and no matter how many times i remove the stones, the right rear (and no other) tyre picks up stones in this section.

The tak-tak noise gets so bad that I can not drive with windows down. Is there a particular problem with that tyre? I've checked tyre pressure multiple times.

Also, will it cause damage to the tyre long term if I stop picking the stones out and ignore them?

Thanks in advance.

Stones in the tread pattern should not be a problem. But regarding the specific tyre - have you tried to swap that tyre into another position & see what happens ?

No, I haven't. That's an excellent idea! That should clear up if its the tyre being too "Attractive" or if there's a different issue.

Thanks a million.
